If you haven’t already signed up then there’s still time to get involved in the 2018 Community Festival

Following the huge success of the first University-wide Community Festival in 2017 we are looking for staff and students to offer an activity at our 2018 Community Festival on Saturday 16 June.

As part of our commitment to enhancing our relationship with members of our local communities, we held our first University-wide Community Festival in June of this year with nearly 2,000 visitors coming along to find out more about our work, have fun and try out some of our activities.

The next Community Festival will be on Saturday 16 June 2018 from 11am-4pm centred round Manchester Museum, University Place and Bridgeford Street.

From family-friendly table top activities to guided tours and musical performances, we are looking for expressions of interest for those wishing to get involved.

The Festival aims to enhance our engagement with our local neighbouring communities by running a free, fun and interactive pan-University event that appeals to individuals and families and provides opportunities for them to engage with the a variety of University activities e.g. research, learning, sport, cultural institutions and our students.

If you are interested in taking part, please complete the expression of interest form (doc) by 19 January 2018 and return it to suzanne.spicer@manchester.ac.uk
